There are many things are responsible for itchy head skin,from dandruff to ringworm or something more serious like a bacterial infection or autoimmune condition. Before you can stop the itch, you need to find out what’s causing it.
Here are some causes and treatments for itchy head skin.

  • Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes scaly patches,reddish on the scalp skin.Doctors don’t have a clear region of what exactly causes this skin disorder, but you’re more likely to develop it if someone in your family has it.Mainly doctors suggest to use medicated shampoos or other drugs,if not working make an appointment with your dermatologist.
  • Dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis most common reasons for an itchy scalp.Your body’s inflammatory response to an overgrowth of yeast causes the itching and flaking associated with these conditions. Yeast normally lives on the scalp and other hairy areas of the body, but the problem arises when there’s too much yeast present.
  • Tinea Capitis This is a kind of fungal infection commonly known as ringworm, which can infect the head scalp skin.Tinea capitis extends deep into the hair follicle, causing round patches of hair loss that increase in size over time. The rash may appear raised and with black dots or a stubbly appearance.
  • Allergic Reaction Allergic reactions will generally go away on their own if you can identify and avoid the chemical to which you are allergic. This is challenging and specialized tests in a dermatologist’s office may be needed to sort out which chemical is causing the allergy.
